Special honor for women’s basketball team

Washington University in St. Louis women’s basketball coach Nancy Fahey picks up a special achievement award from the St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame Nov. 16 on behalf of the women’s basketball team. The Hall of Fame Award of Champions was presented to the coach at a dinner at the Millennium Hotel that inducted 16 to the St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame — including Rams great Marshall Faulk and Blues legend Brett Hull — and honored the Bears for winning the 2010 NCAA Division III women’s basketball championship last March. The Bears’ defense of their national title opened with a win over Fontbonne University Nov. 15 and the team is now 2-1 on the season.
